Sweet Tone-live band performance @ Farquhar’s Bar, Eastern & Oriental (E&O) Hotel

I was enjoying myself in a live band performance called Sweet Tone around 2 weeks ago in Farquhar’s Bar of the Eastern & Oriental Hotel.

They are new 3 piece band comprises of Mahazan Jalaluddin, Mohd Akhir bin Abdul Rashid and Haidee Lim.

The performance is available from Thursdays to Saturdays between 8pm to 11pm from now till 26 April 2014.

The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is proud to present their new 3 piece band, Sweet Tone. They will be performing at the Farquhar Bar. The new 3 piece band comprises of Mahazan Jalaluddin, Mohd Akhir bin Abdul Rashid and Haidee Lim.

Mahazan Jalaluddin, a former member of the Malaysian People Band famous in the 90’s is on backup vocals and plays both the guitar and bass in Sweet Tone. He has also backed up several local and international artistes like Siti Nurhaliza and Kris Dayanti.

Mohd Akhir, also on backup vocals, is the keyboardist for Sweet Tone. He was also a former member of the Malaysian People Band and has worked with local artistes like Rahim Maarof and Amy Mastura.

Haidee Lim from the Philippines is the lead vocalist of the band. She is a professional performer based in Penang since the year 1989 and has been entertaining guests in top hotels and private functions. She is able to sing a wide array of musical genres.

The band’s repertoire includes jazz and old favourites from the 60’s to the 80’s.  

Wine Bar of Farquhar's Bar
You may find many foreigners are enjoying themselves in this live band performance

Farquhar’s Bar offers a lot of drinks include house wine, cocktail, mocktail, vodka, blended whisky, tequila and many more.

I do not really prefer alcohol drinks, therefore I’ve chosen a glass of Oriental Moon Light (RM19++), which contains mango juice, guava juice, lemon juice and ginger ale. The taste of drink is more to sour as having mango and lemon inside the drink.

My friends had E&O Sling (RM29++) cocktail which made of Bombay Gin, Grand Marnier (orange-flavoured cognac liqueur), Creme de menthe (sweet, mint-flavoured alcoholic beverage) and Sprite and another is Grand Oriental mocktail  (Monin Peach, Cranberry Juice, Orange Juice and Sprite) at RM19++.

In conjunction with the debut of Sweet Tone, Farquhar Bar is offering a special promotion on selected drinks. Guests can enjoy selected beverages ranging from house pouring brands, house wine, draught beers, cocktails, mocktails, soft drinks and juices for just RM12++ per glass.

Besides that, Farquhar’s Bar also has some snack for you to enjoy while listening to their performance.

We've ordered Calamari Rings and Truffle Parmesan Fries. Believe me that you will really lick your fingers clean as it is really delicious.

Another finger food that we tried was Chicken Bratwurst with Onion Gravy and Tempura Prawn

We chose avocado and mayonnaise sauces as our sauce, but both sauces are not preferable. We still feel their Thai chili sauce with Tempura Prawn is the best combination. The Tempura Prawn is quite crispy and fresh and the Chicken Bratwurst with Onion Gravy is really best enough without any sauce added.

Price list as below:
A single bowl - RM12++
Duo bowl - RM23++
Trio bowl - RM33++
Quartet bowl - RM42++

If you’re planning to have your dinner here, you may order their ala carte meal. One of our friends had her Fish and Chips (RM35++) came with grilled lemon, toasted petit salad and remoulade sauce. Surprisingly, the portion is quite huge compared with our Asian meal portion, personally feel that this is more suitable to foreigners or big eaters.

And the last meal we ordered was Garlic Marinated Rack of Lamb (RM45++) with herb roasted potato, wild mushroom and shallot sauce. The texture of  lamb is quite tender and all of us liked the wild mushroom so much.
